I got a Pi!!

Tue May 29, 2012 8:13 pm

Mi Pi arrived yesterday from Farnell, I was a little concerned about how it would be packed after reading about flimsy padded bags. All was well, the Pi was in a cardboard box in a padded bag, booted into debian no problems! Wired keybord and a Toshiba wireless mouse (model R300) works fine from a usb hub. No luck yet getting my Zyxel G-202 wifi dongle working.
My main problem is that I can't find the SD card with Arch linux on it... I think the dog eat it!

Nah.... you need a brain to have a memory!

I didn't bother with any unboxing video. One of the USB port is definitely less-functional than the other -- a lot of errant keystrokes being registered. For now, I'm only using the other working port, with the super mouse being chained into my Apple keyboard.
